Del.icio.us as podcast publishing and remixing platform

Don't look now, but del.icio.us has become a podcast publishing platform. Could this supercede other podcast registry sites such as audio.weblogs.com, PodcastAlley and others? Ok, maybe not on the grand scale of things. But if you're already familiar with del.icio.us's social sharing and tagging capabilities, you can see that this could be a powerful combination with endless possibilities.

Del.icio.us will generate an RSS 2.0 feed with enclosures when using any of the new special system:media or system:filetype tags. Adding in other tags with the "+" sign allows you to remix your own podcast of serendipity based upon the files that others are posting. Examples (some from Joshua's post, some mine):

(And of course, the RSS feeds of the above for your podcatcher are available on the page via the little orange icon.)
